Mint Chocolate Christmas Cookies!
By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!

I am adapting a recipe out of my Betty Crocker cookbook for this. It is the one for Candy Cookies, ya know… the one with the candy coated chocolate pieces! I wanted to do something fun with the Andie’s mint chips I found. I think this will be fun.

Makes around 3 dozen cookies

Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter flavor shortening
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour (not self-rising)
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup Andie’s Mint Chips
  • ½ cup holiday M&M’s

Preheat oven to 375*F

Sugars

Mix the two sugars, shortening, vanilla and egg together.

Dry

Baked

Bake 8 – 10 minute or until edges are lightly browned.

When I made this I used too many of the candies. They were still good, just a bit too chunky, so I cut the recipe back to a ½ cup of each.  You can adjust to your tastes.
